PolicyCenter S200 is Blue Coat’s central management system for managing legacy and S-Series
PacketShaper models. Unlike previous versions of PolicyCenter, the new version ships on an appliance
(PC-S200), and does not run under Microsoft Windows.
PolicyCenter provides the following benefits:
Create a master configuration of common PacketShaper settings, traffic classes, policies, and partitions, and then apply the configuration to many PacketShaper appliances at once. In PolicyCenter, you can create multiple configurations, in a hierarchical structure.
Allow an individual PacketShaper to have exceptions to its assigned PolicyCenter configuration by overriding the inherited settings.
View a status summary of all managed PacketShapers. At a glance, see if any PacketShapers have errors or warning messages.
Instead of manually upgrading a group of PacketShapers to the same software release, distribute the image to all units in a single operation.
The PolicyCenter S-Series appliance allows you to centrally manage PacketShaper S-Series appliances running PS 11.5.2 or higher as well as legacy units running PacketWise 9.2. (Previous versions of PolicyCenter can only manage legacy PacketShapers.)
This new appliance can manage up to 100 PacketShapers.
